Aamanns smørrebrødsdeli

Authentic, affordable smørrebrød in Copenhagen
Smørrebrød are a daily staple of the Danish diet, which centers on hearty food with fresh ingredients. They're open-faced sandwiches, with only one slice of bread each, and they burst with flavor. They're also one of the prettier things I've ever consumed. Aamanns is a great place to try your first ones: it's unpretentious and casual, but one of the best places to eat in Copenhagen. Let me explain their goodness, which almost always comes on dense Nordic rye bread: the left is Nordic salmon (lox), whipped cream cheese (not your average bagel smear), sliced onion, pickled tomatoes, and dill; the right is goat cheese, pickled red onion, radish, and a bushel of tender herbs. Oh, and to make you feel better about "jipping" you of the other slice of bread to your sandwich, Aamanns places a crispy chip of thin, salty bread right across the top, which I assure you is just as satisfying as the other.
